the full moon....

OK - now I'm no skinny minnie, but I'm not a large marge either - but even *I* know what NOT to wear. This girl obviously doesn't. And when she got up and walked, she was shakin' it like a polariod picture.

We were in podunk, the field was good - but the facilities left a bit to be desired.

Oh - and ladies - I can get it that some of you don't want to sit on a public toilet and pee - but do me a favor? Don't pee all over the seat so that when I come in, I have to clean it up in order to pee? Gross.

What a day!

Just give it a little push.....

We were at the mall, and one of those quarter games was there - you know the one, where the quarters pile up and look like they're all going to spill over the edge? My friend Carla and I were there. Looking at it. And we both agreed it was a scam. So we gave it a little push. Just a little one. That's all.

The alarm went off.

We ran. Like little kids. We ran. And laughed our asses off. I almost peed myself.

Then we found the kids and left the mall. Quickly.

We had gone to the mall, looking for Steven Berry's store. Or at least that's what Carla called it. It wasn't there. So I did a google search for Steven Berry in the town, and we found an address. It was his house.

Turns out? We were looking for Steve AND BARRY's store. Not Steven Berry's house. But I can tell you how to get there!

From Steve's house, we went north. To Ann Arbor. They have Zingerman's there. Food nirvana. Jewish deli nirvana. I had #72 - Gregg's Master recipe. Look it up.

I had a moment. I almost needed privacy.

I brought home some of the chocolate sourdough bread. Yes, I said chocolate sourdough. mmmmmmmmmm They do mail order. You should try it.

Then we went to the Big House and took a couple of pictures.

Carla almost killed us at least 3 times in the car. All 3 kids in the back seat are lucky to be alive.

Then we went to a baseball game and saw a full moon. While the sun was out. I'll post a picture later. After I've had breakfast.

Then we came home.

Yep. Good day.

F You Friday

Two years ago this month, I had just come back from one of the most beautiful places that I'd ever been to. What an amazing, amazing trip.

This was our accommodations:

During that trip we also got to see Seattle, and some other great places. And when we got back to MI, a lot of bullshit got thrown at me, and my ex and I ended up breaking up.

So, here's to new beginnings, better lives and standing up for what you believe in - even if you stand alone.

While I would do it all again, I may have done it a bit differently, so that others would have seen the truth, what was really going on and so that certain people (cough.. Jocelyn... cough...) would have been exposed as the con artist that slowly people are starting to realize she is. It's been a long time coming, but karma is sweet.

Happy "Anniversary" Theo - and go fuck yourself. LOL

This has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen.. or seen in a long time...


Life IS good

The boy had a great time at camp. Who knew that boys clothes could smell SO bad? And seriously? Wearing one pair of underwear all week (that's what it looked like) and perfectly clean ones coming out of the suitcase? I don't get it. I'm washing them all anyway.

Yesterday I was BIIIIIIIIIZEEEEEE (yeah, I know I spelled it wrong) - I spent 2 1/2 hours weeding the back yard yesterday, and looking out the window, I still see more of the fuckers out there just waiting to be pulled. But my back can't take any more this weekend. lol Maybe I'll pour boiling water on them and see how they like THAT... But we put down more seed, fertilizer and some "sow and grow" stuff. The boy came up with the brilliant idea of mixing the 3 together and putting it down all together. I knew I had that kid for a reason :)

I rearranged the patio set and now I'm able to walk around on it without walking into something. I just needed more time to think it through. I replanted two plants that needed it about a year ago. They look fantastic.

I still haven't painted. LOL

Got some shepherd's hooks and hung pretty flowers. There's grass growing in most spots.

I sat outside and read my book for a bit, and thought about where I am - I own my own house, have a job that is good (better stories than traffic, but too slow for me - I need to be busy all the time), a great kid, great friends, good neighbors, and while I miss the beach and my peeps back "home"? Life IS good. I need to remember that more often.

Manic Monday #175

Hey - two weeks in a row! Woohoo!! Play along here :)

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at:

Baking. Sarcasm. I know, you're thinking that the two don't go together, aren't you? Well, you could say that I can hand you a piece of cake and tell you that not only will you like it, you'll fucking LOVE it and if you don't it'll turn to shit. Yeah. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Name two things you consider yourself to be bad at:

Filters. Apparently I am missing a few. LOL And apparently relationships. I can't seem to meet a normal guy - maybe that's it. Finding normal guys to be in a relationship with. One was married (don't ask - and he'd be the one with the penis growing out of his forehead), one liked to show his penis on the internet, one had an overwhelming desire to crawl inside my ass so as to suffocate me (see - sarcasm.. lol), another liked his beer more than me, another liked the filthy whore more than me, another... well - you get the point.. lol

Name one thing not many people know about you:

Um. The whole married guy thing? Or maybe... hell, I don't know - I'm an open book. Not much.

Hope everyone had a great 4th!

I'm packing up the boy to drop him off at camp for a week. I may not be around much because I'm singing and dancing nekkid around my house - just because I can, you know. LOL Ahhhhh, who am I kidding - I'll miss him like heck.

Here are some pics from the 4th -

The look on the kids' faces was great

Fog, or smoke from all the fireworks? Either way it looked cool!

Boys. They love firey stuff. LOL

There was lots of these...
A good time was had by all. Sangria was drunk (drank?)- aw hell, either way it's gone! LOL Yummy dip was eaten.. all was right with the world. Life is good.

See that? That's fruit. That's been soaking in wine, vodka and some other stuff. I just added some 7-Up to it and it is the most deeeeeeeeeeeeeelightful beverage ever. There's pineapple in there. Nothing retained it's color. LOL

Here is the recipe - I changed a couple of things - I used fresh pineapple, I haven't added the berries (yet LOL) and instead of orange juice, I put in a splash of key lime juice.

Here's to a clear butt!! ROFL


* 1 Bottle of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
* 1 Lemon cut into wedges
* 1 Orange cut into wedges
* 1 Lime cut into wedges
* 2 Tbsp sugar
* Splash of orange juice or lemonade
* 2 Shots of white rum or vodka
* 1 Cup of raspberries or strawberries (may use thawed or frozen)
* 1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
* 4 Cups ginger ale

Pour wine into a large pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and pineapple then add sugar, orange juice and rum/vodka. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale, berries and ice just before serving. If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice. However, remember that the best Sangrias are chilled around 24 hours in the frig. - allowing the flavors to really marinate into each other.
